They're asking my questions!

I have listened to all of Father DeYoung's Bible studies, beginning with Deuteronomy at St. George's Cathedral in West Virginia (stgeorgecharleston.org/audio). One of the main elements that contributes to my understanding and integration of the information offered is the conversation amongst and between Father DeYoung and his parishioners. One of the main reasons that I continue to trust the information is due to the humility and love shown by Father DeYoung amid these conversations.

Alternatively, he could seek to squelch conversation in order to promote the depth of his own intelect. In other words, he could just deliver a lecture.

Thank you, Father DeYoung for having the courage to expose yourself to so many questions and concerns and for having the humility to simply say when you need time to find the best possible answer to a question.

The Whole Story

What I appreciate most about Fr Stephen’s approach is the sense that he is providing as close to a 360 view as he can to each line of Holy Scripture. He goes to considerable effort to give listeners context and social customs, as well as the verbiage of the original texts. Going a step beyond that, Fr Stephen highlights correlation among sources to refine, corroborate, or contrast subtleties we could easily miss without such a knowledgeable guide.

I look forward to this on an almost daily basis and I’m no Orthodox!

I’ve so enjoyed Luke and now I’m in the middle of Acts. The only reason I didn’t give it five stars is because there is too much interruption and interaction with the congregants, one in particular. You almost get the sense he wants to take over and start teaching. I understand an occasional question, but it gets very annoying from an audience perspective when every pause triggers a comment.
